I seemed to have misunderstood the discussion.  Was the original user
accessing and saving copies of many millions of these doubles?  That's
the only way that I would be able to explain the huge overhead, and in
that case, perhaps the user should have been storing them in scipy
arrays (or even Python array.arrays).
